Do you do shock jocks? (This thread is dedicated to DJ of course;-)

Do you listen to shock jocks on the radio and/or interwebs? Who do you listen to and why?

If you don't listen to them, why not? Do you find them culturally repugnant? Worse? Are they the bane of western culture? The reason for the decline of human civilization? Or just a group of hot air blowers?

I've been listening to Bryan Brushwood's podcast NSFW on the TWIT network for the past two or three months and I just realized he definitely would fit under the shock jock category. He's quite funny and quite addictive. He's pretty tech savvy as he's a guest on many of the TWITs' (This Week in Technology) mostly techcentric podcasts. His NSFW hardly ever touches upon tech but it's too difficult to classify.

Their latest gimmick is brilliant! Recently, they published an erotic secret parody of the recent publishing phenomenon, 50 shades of Gray trilogy. It's an ebook titled The Diamond Club. They had their listeners write a chapter each and compiled this book together to game the iTunes ebook sales system. At one point in the past couple of weeks, they topped 50 Shades of Gray and was the number one book on iTunes. I believe they're still on the top 10 iTunes sales list right now.

The link to their erotic secret parody:
Ignore the typo on the page. The book is supposedly 250+ pages long not 31.
